I confess, I am not super speedy. That means that the 5K is not my favorite race distance. I’m just hitting my stride by the time a 3.1-mile race is over! Plus, for a 5K, the race-fee to race-distance ratio is too high! I want some more mileage for my money. Even 8K is not long enough for me. I am an endurance runner. That being said, I found the half marathon to be quite challenging and not exactly what I would call “fun.” Satisfying? Yes. Rewarding? Yes. Challenging? YES! My favorite? No.
